All the staff takes the time to answer my questions.  They are so knowledgeable about my son and are a big support to me.


Shore caters to my brother’s needs with care, respect and dignity.


Great communication from everyone at Shore!


All the Staff really know and value my child for who he is, even when he can be challenging.
